The presentation, diagnosis and treatment of cervical osteoid osteoma.
  1. A. P. Walker

    Abstract

    A case of cervical osteoid osteoma is reported, with a brief account of the diagnosis and treatment of these lesions. Cervical osteoid osteoma is rare but its pattern of presentation varies little and it should therefore be possible to suspect it on clinical grounds alone. Bone scanning is now regarded as more efficient than radiography in identifying the lesion but X-ray tomography will normally be required for the accurate localization needed before surgery. Correct surgical treatment results in complete cure.
